2016 Democratic Primary

Here we are today with only around 3% of delegates decided (yes logicians, that does mean there are 97% of delegates yet to be awarded), and the candidates that are really winning this primary are Chicken Little and The Hulk.
In the current anti-Trump political environment, should Americans go for what they really want, or should they be content to defeat Trump and preserve/conserve the status quo that keeps the 99% in economic bondage?
Finally! After a two month break from debates, the top ten candidates for president in the Democratic Party gather in Houston to debate. And all of them on the same stage on the same...
Those who defend and support treason, regardless of their reasons for supporting it, are guilty of aiding and abetting treason.
We will likely see the largest and most diverse field of Democrats running for the presidential nomination. Here is our Way Too Early List of which Democrats may be more or less likely to win the 2020 nomination and why.

Elizabeth Warren is everything Hillary needed to be but couldn't be to win this election. She is authentic, inspirational, a woman of the people, sympathetic, has an enthusiastic following in the Dem base and is a powerful and energizing speaker. She is a fighter for the regular American worker who feels left behind or neglected by their government/society, the very voters Trump used to win election because they felt they had nowhere else to go.
